Text in original Preserved German Tanks publication:

This is the only surviving example of the Karl Gerät. It is a combination of two vehicles captured by the Russians (source: R. Fleming). Its chassis is of the second design, with eleven roadwheels per side, and it mounts the shorter 60cm mortar.

Text in Preserved German Tanks Update:

This Karl Gerät was named “Ziu”. It saw action in Warsaw from 17 August 1944 against the Warsaw Uprising but was moved to Jüterbog on 22 September for repairs. It was captured by the Red Army, probably when they overran Jüterbog on 20 April 1945. (Source: Wikipedia).
